Winamp < 5.552 Buffer Overflow
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5031
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow
DescriptionThe remote host is running Winamp, a media player for Windows. The version of Winamp installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.552. Such versions reportedly contain a flaw in the way that it handles malformed '.maki' files. A malfored file will cause a buffer overflow within the 'gen_ff.dll' library. Successful exploitation will result in the attacker executing arbitrary code. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, would need to be able to entice a user into opening a malformed '.maki' file.
SolutionUpgrade to Winamp version 5.552 or later.
